a Kuvira Laghima declared the United States of Earth abolished on 31 December 2000, but her suicide caused unclarity and Senna Zenglai, de facto leader of the nation effectively dismantled the government and called upon all armed forces to stand down

The United States of Earth (USE), also called the Earth Empire, United Empire and the Earth Republic was a sovereign state that covered nearly all of Eurasia and large parts of Sinica, Africa and Oceania as its height, it claimed the entire world as its territory. Declared by Kuvira Laghima in 1990, at its height, the "empire" was by far the largest state in world history, as well as the most populous one. Despite its name, the nation was not ruled by an emperor and was a nation with many political freedoms and a paragon of human rights. The nation was the closest thing to a world state in human history.

The state was intended to govern the entire world, but ultimately Kuvira surrendered herself after coming to a realization. If it had been successful, the United States of Earth, would be a world government, with a democratically elected President as its leader.

Though the United States of Earth's victory in the conquest of the world was seemingly inevitable, Laghima surrendered by her own will. Five days after the armistice, the Great Concordance was signed, returning the world to a state of peace and dissolving the United States of Earth.

Background

World domination as a primary goal has never been the official intention of any known nation prior to the establishment of the USE. Various known historical figures such as Genghis Khan and Céline I of Valence have boasted about their plans for world conquest, though no person ever came close to conquering the world.

Prelude

The United Nations were founded in 1984, by a council consisting of every sovereign nation in the world, on the suggestion of the United Republican politician Kuvira Laghima. Prior to the establishment of the organization, several nations felt the need of an organization where nations could set aside their differences and talk peacefully, yet no concrete plans had been made. Some were skeptical about Laghima's motivations behind such a move. At first, Laghima did not intend to establish a world government, yet when she realized the United Nations were less effective than she had hoped for, she came to believe uniting the world would serve humanity best to promote equality, liberty and harmony.

Election of Laghima as President

In 1989, President Sorghaghtani Bolormaa died from a cardiac arrest, and an emergency election was to be held. Kuvira Laghima, one of the most influential politicians in the nations, announced her candidacy, to the shock of many. Considered too young and inexperienced by the wealthier population, Sandra Ascalon emerged as the front-runner of the opposition. Despite Ascalon's grand campaign, she was defeated by Laghima, who was elected President. Promising to lead the nation to greatness, Laghima set out to fulfill her goals.

Declaration of the United States of Earth

As her support grew, those who opposed Laghima was increasingly seen as "deviants" by the population. Ascalon, continued to insist Laghima was hiding a sinister plan.
